The Great Hunter

Here you are, on your way to Hell

You, by your choice, you took this path

What if you fooled yourself with fancy words?

Your thoughts were different

And they, slyly, prepared this track


Now you look around, being lost

You didn't believe in worlds like these you see

The grief has been eating you, for so long

So easy, so sweet, eating you from the inside


The Great Hunter, the fear

Is right behind you, he reaches you

You run like hell, entering the Castle and lock the gates

But you close outside your King too, and

Who else could fight for you, but Him?


And now, who is knocking on the gates

Stop screaming, stop hiding from the Truth

Open the gates and get you out

Get out of the Hell that you have made


Open the gates and look at His Grace, is there

His helping hand is waiting for you

To cross you over the valley of fear

To bring you back to the Promised Land

Be brave and know, You and Him are One!


Sean Dragon, October 1995

Expel the fear to see all the miracles it's hiding from you.

— Sean Dragon

Face Everything And Rise

The fear is the Great Hunter. He hunts us from the first years of our life and for as long as we let him define us, we are becoming his prey. His primary means are delusions. Failure, deprivation, loneliness, death. The truth is that he has so many "weapons" and we give him, even more, every day. We have filled our world with these. We have exchanged the Paradise which had been given to us with a world full of fear.

You can see the fear in the faces of children all over the world experiencing poverty, war, lack of essential goods, moral and sexual abuse.

Source

There is in the souls of all people deprived of their homeland, their families, their freedom, who lose their jobs and their dignity. But also to those who live in the illusion of material pleasures and the constructed and false beauty that can be lost anytime, but which in any case creates a more substantial void than the one they fill.

We are continually trying to escape from this Great Hunter, but from this point, our defeat begins, because only when we turn our back to fear, to run away, we become his game. Then there is no shelter anywhere because you cannot hide from the delusion you carry in you. Because this is what the fear is, and nothing more!

If you fill yourself with Love there is no place for fear.

— Sean Dragon

But as this delusion exists within us, there is within us the Truth, too, that can erase it. And this Truth is that we are the children of the Creator of miracles and the invincible power of Love. And our Father never abandoned us and never will.

He is always there, our King and our Defender against the lie and the fear. He gives us His hand to hold and cross over from the valley of despair and the hell we created and shut ourselves in, to the Promised Land of Love.

Only one move needs to be done, one choice. Choose love instead of the fear that leads us to selfishness, condemnation, separation, hatred and war. Choose Love and then the Great Hunter will become ashes and will be lost.

Make your choice, stop hiding, open the gates to your King, and choose Love.

See that even the word fear is an illusion!

F.E.A.R.: Face Everything And Rise

I smile because Love is eternal, my image will be worn, but my Soul will touch infinity! There is no fear in me because there is only the eternity of Love.

— Sean Dragon

      My dear, Missy, thank you so much for your comment. It is a great honour to me when it is coming from such a talented writer like you.

      "Words of wisdom" in my poem! I am much obliged!

      The quote of Franklin D. Roosevelt is one of my favourites; I have it in a frame at my classroom.

      Much Love and Admiration

      Beautiful poem and an important message, which you conveyed very effectively.

      An inspirational poem to help us all realize, "the only thing to fear is fear itself." ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

      That quote came up while I was reading your poem. Your poem explained that in a brilliant story telling way.

      Thanks for sharing your words of wisdom within your poem and your quotes. Blessings!

      Thank you, my dear brother, Tim. Yes! We have the most potent of all weapons, Love. That is the point of my poem. We have to face our fears knowing that Love is the only Truth!

      Let my Love be your shield, too, on your ours of need.

      Your Brother,

      Sea, what a wonderful message you share here. We have to stand bravely and face the Great Hunter, front on. Safe in the protection of a much greater and power. If we have and act in 'love' we can defeat any foe. I love your quote at the end too.

      This seems to have answered my nightmare or is it simply love...love is the answer, so they say.

      I enjoyed your work.

      Excellent, Sean. fear is a clever hunter, shooting arrows at our hearts when we are weak. I remember what my grandmother taught us as children, in the biblical text, there is no protection for the back when Paul talks about putting on the whole armor of God. We are supposed to face those fears, take on the "hunter" because we have the most potent of all weapons, love.

      Hunter versus soldier of God. We know who wins.

      Thought provoking poem and beautiful quotes.

      Thanks again.

      Sincerely,

      Your Brother,

      Tim

      Ha. That is what I like to you so much, my friend, Bill! Your perception of the world! Because you can see that beyond the title and the theme, this a work about Love. This makes two of us because my favourite topic is love too. Everything -almost- I write is about love.

      "I believe that Love is the answer to any question."

      This is my motto.

      May Love continue to give you the strength to motivate people!

      Sean

      PS: I am sure God really found the best parents in the world, for you, because they have done tremendous work with you! So happy Mother's day twice.

      My dear, Frank, thank you so much! But this is not a hell of a compliment, is a heaven of a compliment! It's an apotheosis, to use a Greek word.

      Thank you so much even if I know that I am a student and they are teachers, and you are, too, a teacher to me, my friend with your own beautiful way.

      Gratitude!

      You are such an intelligent person, Li-Jen! I am so proud of you! Your comment is so deep and wise, and a punch on the jaw! Ha.Ha.

      Yes, my friend, I am always trying to implement what I write. I don't always succeed though, because I have ended up with the conclusion that the one who writes is a higher me, and sometimes the other me, who lives in the daily world is weaker. But I know that the one who writes is who has right. So I try, and I am happy, and as about fear, I have replaced it 99% with Love. The other 1% is for the thrill of being, still, mortal!

      Thank you!

      Your words are blessing, though! The words of your poems, and this comment.

      I feel that I am learning from you so many things, every day.

      I wish to be a good student.

      Love is the Sacred Flame that burns our common Hearts!

      Fear and doubt are very big ones. They are accompanied by their sisters insecurity and resentment ... a lack of faith in who we are and where we are going. So tough here in Nairobi! But I feel that this ailment is common to all. Bless you Bro.

      Excellent and clever poetry. Now I will start looking over my shoulders like Lewis Hamilton, just in case you try to overtake. (Chuckle)

      A great poem Sean Brother about fear and how to kill this beast.

      We can overcome all with eternal love and thankfulness.

      Love gives us confidence to believe and there isn’t any space left for fear then.

      I learnt some golden tips for this soulful hub.

      Bless you and your family always brother.

      And Happy Mother’s Day!
